Crockpot Split Pea Soup

I recently purchased a ham (bone-in) from Aldi for around $3!!!
I decided to use my slow cooker to cook the ham, so I layered brown sugar in the bottom of the slow cooker and then placed the ham in the pot.  I added a bit of apple juice for moisture and let it cook on low for about 8 hours.  It was the best ham I've ever had.  The crockpot can make anything melt in your mouth!
I removed most of the meat and decide to make pea soup. I removed the apple juice and brown sugar syrup from the crock-pot and followed this recipe with a few minor changes.
 I added a few diced potatoes and tarragon.  I let it cook overnight and woke up for a nice pea soup breakfast!
